I'm working on edits to my first novel, well, at least the first one I'm going to submit for publication. It is set in Germany in World War 2 and I'm so excited about the story. After my editing and polishing is done, I will be looking for an agent to start the rounds of publishers.
Well, only a month until the official release of Simply Content! I am so excited about the message of this book: God used my research and writing to speak to me. And I'm still learning more on this topic.
There are a couple other projects "in the mill" right now; one of them is a fiction idea that I hope I can bring to reality. I appreciate your prayers if you think of it. I want any fiction endeavor to be something that gives Him glory and not just to fulfill a deep-seated personal desire.
You'll be hearing more from me as the process continues. Catch up with me on Facebook in the meantime!
Nothing endures but change . . . that bit of wisdom is so true of earthly life. Change brings adjustment, challenge and opportunity. As a pastoral ministry family, we have experienced many changes in the past few weeks. After one door closed, God opened another position for us and we are at a new place of ministry in northeast Ohio. My children are enrolled in a Christian dayschool; so no more homeschool. I am trying to find some part-time work to help with living expenses and still leave time for writing. My husband is pastor to a wonderful congregation of people and also seeking secondary employment. We are enjoying our new home and friends and trying to settle into the new routine God has given us.
I have some projects in the works right now. You'll be hearing more about them soon. Sometimes I've been frustrated that it's not possible to just write 24/7. There is so much living that gets in the way! But, aside from the unhappy results to my family, I don't think that would be good for me as a writer either. You see, writing comes from living; and blessed is the writer who does not scorn the living from the writing flows.
